News & Notes
USET Conference in Washington DC
Pictured above, in green, is Aleesha Smoke, daughter of Becky Smoke, at the USET conference in Washington DC. USET is an acronym for United Southern and Eastern Tribes. Each year this conference is held the first week in February. Student representatives from Native American Territories along the East Coast and South gather to collaborate on the current issues of their Territories. The students worked in groups to create presentations which describe these issues and include a solution. Later in the week, the students present their issues to the USET Council. After the presentations, the council decides if their issue and solution will move to the Federal government level where they will lobby for funds for each of the Territories which will aid in implementing the solutions to bring about change. JOM Coordinator, Samantha Phillips, accompanied Aleesha and students from Salmon River to the conference.
